Moore Makes Bookies Wonder

Bookmakers William Hill were baffled after Gary Moore suggested he would send Ar Mad to the Arkle. The trainer had previously said Ar Mad needed to go right-handed.


“Initially we refused to quote Ar Mad for the Arkle as his trainer had suggested he needed to go right-handed. It appears he’s changed his mind,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
